Abstract:

"When seven former bunkmates at Willow Lake Camp reunite for the camp's one hundredth anniversary, the event brings more than just a revival of the old camp spirit. Ali Cohen, an Oscar-nominated filmmaker and former camp outcast, plans to make a documentary about her former bunkmates. The ugly duckling turned successful self-made swan secretly hopes that her teenage tormentors will have grown into adult losers. As each woman steps into focus, however, it becomes clear that it is not quite that simple. Sure, Arden can't keep a job (even as a nanny!), Jessica is stuck in regional theater, and Dafna has lost both her job and her $20,000 per month stipend from her father. But Laura is apparently flourishing as a Los Angeles superagent, and Beth has found happiness by throwing over her dull but successful fiancé for her wedding photographer. Even Wendy, golden girl turned Short Hills housewife, has managed to skirt around old regrets and long-stifled urges--until seeing an old acquaintance stirs them up again."--
